Hugs and Kisses

Saturday night, some friends from church invited us over to their house for dinner. They have a 1 year old, named Peter.

Kendall's interactions with other kids usually involves her stealing toys from them, and then completely ignoring them. Not with Peter, though. From the moment they laid eyes on each other, they were each mesmerized.

Peter thought Kendall was pretty cool for walking all around, and Kendall thought his crawling was pretty cool, and reverted back to that for a bit.

They shared really well, too. Peter kindly gave up his favorite toy to Kendall, who held onto it the whole time we were there.

At one point, Peter was standing up, holding onto his mom's leg, and Kendall thought since they were finally at the same height she should just give him a big smacker! Her kisses always begin with kissing sounds when she's still several inches away from her target (kind of like a warning signal). I heard the kissing sounds, and looked over to find her hanging onto Peter, forcing a kiss on him. Well, with all of Kendall's forcefulness, Peter lost his balance and took quite the tumble, hitting his head on a cabinet. Kendall didn't quite understand why anyone would cry after receiving one of her famous kisses! But all was better in just a few minutes. She made sure to give him a few more kisses that night to make sure everything was okay.

I wish we had remembered our camera that night, but we didn't. Just know that it was all very, very cute.
